Networking opportunities

Connecting in a digital age

Networking plays a pivotal role at Sibos, providing unparalleled opportunities to catch up with your contacts and connect with new business partners from around the world. Providing a forum for the Sibos community to connect, even while physically apart, is just as important this year as ever. 

Welcoming a wider pool of delegates than ever before, Sibos 2020 will encompass a range of networking opportunities optimised for the digital age. All registered participants will be able to see who else is attending and initiate new partnerships.

Community initiatives

Embracing the Sibos community spirit

Bringing the financial community together, while supporting equality and diversity to drive positive change in the world around us, is at the very core of Sibos. 

The Sibos Talent Accelerator Route (STAR) scholarship returns to empower the female leaders of tomorrow, with a special programme uniting women in finance from around the world. 

Sibos 2020 will also see the launch of the Sibos Academy, a new programme stream dedicated to providing expert, educational and community focused content to foster dialogue through diversity of opinion. The Sibos Academy will include daily sessions during Sibos week on 5-8 October 2020 and beyond. 

As part of our work to support local communities, we’re also partnering with Dream Big, the Boston charity that empowers girls through sport and recreation to contribute positively to their health and wellbeing. 

Finally, the Sibos Hackathon will take centre stage as talented developers from fintechs and banks collaborate to create new solutions for the data-driven world of smart finance. Meanwhile, the industry’s most exciting fintech start-ups will take part in the Discover Perfect Pitch competition, presenting transformational technologies and business models to shape tomorrow’s economy. These Discover initiatives will open in advance, culminating in a grand finale with audience voting as part of the Sibos week programme. 

Stay tuned for more details on all the community initiatives and how you can get involved.
